I work with a bunch of Republicans (which is sort of surprising really) and for the most part I really don't care... but there's this one guy who gets me mad every time he starts talking politics. Every so often he'll go off on liberals and how everyone is "lazy" and all that crap, while this guy has his parents paying fully for his college AND a beach house he lives in off-campus, while he goes out gambling and drinking all the time and gets pretty bad grades. Add to that he got his job through connections (I don't remember exactly, either his mom works in another department or is friends with the boss or something) and has, in the past, "forgotten" to come into work once or twice. Which is fine with me, everyone makes mistakes... but then there's my other friend I worked with who was basically fired after he was caught texting on a slow day. So yeah, he's a nice guy and everything but when he goes off on stuff politics, he sounds like such an ignorant hypocrite it's amazing. ...Not that this has much to do with the topic.
But yes, not all, but a lot of Republicans here seem pretty bad. Both sides have their bad qualities but it certainly seems like the majority of Republicans are either religious fanatics or Tea Baggers or hypocrites or crazy or homophobes, etc etc. I know some that aren't any of the above and they're absolutely fine so I wouldn't call them all out, but... well the latest GOP candidates sort of illustrates the problem they have: if Romney, Trump, Gingrich, Bachmann, Perry, and worst of all Santorum are the big names in the party, that definitely doesn't look good. Huntsman seemed like the only guy worth a damn really and he was basically the jobber of the group there.
